Where to Look

St George Historical Society holdings

The Society has various items donated to it over the years.  Most of it is in storage at the St George Town Office and that material has been catalogued by the Marshall Point Lighthouse Committee.  The index to that material is currently available at the Marshall Point Lighthouse museum.

Marshall Point Lighthouse Committee

The Marshall Point Lighthouse Committee is a sub-committee of the Historical Society and maintains the museum at the Marshall Point Lighthouse.  Their displays focus on the lighthouse and other local history.  You can visit their website by clicking here.
